Beginner Rafting in Steamboat
For a mild and scenic beginner river trip, try our states namesake, the Colorado River. This Class I and II stretch is perfect for guests of all ages and physical abilities.The Colorado is located about 55 minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs. For a more convenient and quicker run, the Yampa River town stretch is a great option.

Intermediate Steamboat Rafting
For those looking to stir up a bit more adrenaline, the Elk and Eagle Rivers offer Class III and IV rapids. These streches are more agressive and require paddlers to work together as a team to navigate around obstacles such as waves and boulders.

Advanced Rafting in Steamboat
If you've rafted class III or IV in the past and you are ready to step it up, Cross Mountain Canyon on the Yampa River may be the answer. This Class IV/V trip is for individuals who are in good physical condition and want to work hard for their thrills.

Whichever section you choose, you will surely be stunned by the beauty of our Rocky Mountain rivers and may find yourself coming back for more!
